I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years,
dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things.
One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other
grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently
serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously,
As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.
In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military
technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before
that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery
Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National
Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in
between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever
possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
